For the 2019-2020 School Year, we are required to report information on student weight status groups.
As part of a required school health examination, a student is weighed and height is measured. These numbers are used to calculate the student's Body Mass Index (BMI).
NYS Education Law require that BMI and weight status group be included as part of the student's school health exam.
The NYS Department of Health sometimes require us to report student weight status groups. Only summary information is sent. NO NAMES OR INFORMATION ABOUT INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS ARE SENT. However, you may choose to have your child's information excluded from this survey report.
If you do not wish to have your child's weight status group information included as part of the Health Department survey this year, please send your request in writing to the school nurse.
